Dear Speaker Pelosi: IMPEACH DICK CHENEY
by Cindy Sheehan (from listserve)
Friday Nov 23rd, 2007 7:08 AM
Over 3,000 letters received so far!
It has been rumored that Nancy Pelosi would put impeachment back on the table were she to receive 10,000 hand written letters encouraging her to do so. Whether this is a true statement or not we feel it would be a very powerful message to send the speaker and congress. Help us take thousands of letters to Nancy. Lets make this action our Miracle on 34th st. Our holiday present, accountability and justice.

Dear Friends,

Instead of sending your Impeachment letters for Dick Cheney to Nancy Pelosi's office, send them to my office so we can get an official count.Please send them to:
Nancy Pelosi
c/o Cindy for Congress
RE: Impeach Dick Cheney
1260 Mission St
San Francisco, Ca 94103

We are extending the deadline to gather as many letters as possible. Please send your letter by Tuesday November 27th. Spread this far and wide so we can take sacks of letters to her. Don't include anything besides the letter (like a contribution) because we won't be opening the envelopes.

Love
Cindy

Sample Letter
-------------
Dear Speaker Pelosi,

I am writing to urge you to support House Resolution 333, Articles of Impeachment against Vice President Richard B. Cheney. Please consider your constitutional duty to step forward to protect our democracy from further harm. The heart of the current crisis is a Constitutional one. The American people elected a democratic majority to restore our system of checks and balances, the rule of law, and our international standing as an exemplar of democratic leadership and values in the world community. It has become clear to an ever-increasing majority of the American people that the President and Vice President are actively opposing progress in these endeavors.

To date, the evidence of impeachable offenses is overwhelming: the Bush administrations' use of illegal wiretapping and other forms of electronic surveillance, violations of the U.N. Torture Convention and the Geneva Convention, torture and extraordinary rendition, signing statements, and war lies. These activities individually and certainly collectively warrant acomplete immediate investigation by the Congress.

As Speaker of the House, you can play a pivotal role in restoring our constitutional rights and preventing further abuses of power by the Executive branch by supporting HR333. Please don't betray us.

Sincerely,
